Your Obligations - Our Service
(following implementation of the amendment to the Battery Act (BattG), 2021)
We undertake the registration of battery manufacturers or their authorised representatives with the regulatory authority.
On behalf of manufacturers or their authorised representatives, we offer distributors and treatment facilities a reasonable or charge-free possibility to take back products. As part of our industry solutions and on request of our customers, we supply collection containers and ensure that all batteries collected by the collection points are properly recycled.
Distributors are obliged to take back spent batteries from end users. For the cost-free take-back of batteries in or around the immediate vicinity of the retail outlet, we supply collection containers to distributors as part of our industry solutions or at customer's request, and collect filled containers for recycling.
We guarantee that collected and identifiable spent batteries are treated and recycled using state of the art techniques, ensuring prescribed recycling efficiencies are achieved or exceeded.
We prepare an annual performance review for submission to the Federal Environment Agency. Reported metrics include the mass of batteries placed on the market, taken back and recycled by our users, the collection and recycling rate and the qualitative and quantitative recycling and disposal results.
On behalf of the manufacturers or their authorised representatives, we provide distributors with information and communication tools used to inform end users in a legally compliant manner.
